MEGAN Hill has starred in the X-Files, Supernatural and The Magicians and her acting career is only just taking off.

"I really hit the ground running. I was still suffering from jet lag when I started going to my first meetings with talent agents," she said.

"The film industry works a lot faster here; there's an urgency to everything.

"So you really have to be on top of your game all of the time.

"There's also a lot more competition for work, so a lot of my first few months in Vancouver was dedicated to making myself as competitive as possible in the North American market."

She said featuring in the X-Files revival series was an inspiring experience.

"To be a part of that culture was amazing."

Ms Hill also has other exciting projects coming up this year.
